This will be another short and sweet blog entry. This week, Danger Peak won Second Place in The Fall 2022 BookFest Awards in the category of Young Adult Action and Adventure. BookFest is an online event that brings the reading, writing, and publishing communities together. A few of the speakers at The Fall 2022 BookFest were international bestseller Mitch Albom and the actor/writer Danny Trejo. Two of my favorite inspirational books are Tuesdays With Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven, so it was an honor to have my book included during this season’s festival with Albom as a speaker.
According to BookFest, over 667 entries applied to this year’s Fall 2022 BookFest Awards, and I am honored to have placed, particularly in the category of Action and Adventure, a genre of books I heavily devoured when I was a kid, especially the Choose Your Own Adventure series. A few people have told me that Danger Peak is the greatest ‘80s action-adventure kids’ movie never made. Hopefully, that will change one day!
You can see Danger Peak listed on the BookFest website here:
You can also see Danger Peak mentioned in the full festival video below. (To spare you several hours of viewing, it’s mentioned first at the 28-minute mark and then again at the 5-hour and 52-minute mark.)
I’ve already updated this site’s homepage with the BookFest award seal. For those keeping score, Danger Peak has now won four literary competitions, and if you count Honorable Mentions, that brings the total up to six. This is going to be the most boastful sentence I’ve ever written, but here goes: For those who’ve been reading my blog, especially from the beginning way back in March, and are still on the fence about picking up a copy of Danger Peak, have I convinced you yet that this book is worth reading?
On another note, Danger Peak is now part of Amazon’s KDP Select program, which means you can download the eBook for free on Amazon if you have Kindle Unlimited. There will be another announcement regarding this program later this year, but I want to keep it a surprise.
P.S.: Danger Peak is now available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble:
